So as not to hijack the other thread (http://sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9527), I thought that I would start this one as a nice place for all of the Fett-heads to gather so that we don't irritate everybody in the No-Fett thread who have their hearts set on such trifling PF candidates as Palpatine, Darth Maul, Slave Leia, and the rest...

Fett!!! Fett!!! Fett!!!

Erm, we're not going to start a crusade are we? What with those Kurgans and Palpatinians and hints of a Bespin Luke-rs another faction could cause an all out war...

Have we speculated about an exclusive for Fett yet(he he)?

I'd be happy with Fett as the next PF. I know Maul won't be coming real soon with him having a 12" coming next.

I couldn't call myself a Fett fan and let those other crusades go on without one for everybody's favorite bounty hunter. (Except for both of the Zam groupies...)

Did the Kurgan hunt down and capture Han Solo? I don't think so!!!

And don't get me started on Bespin Luke!! He got his butt whooped by his half-robotic old man, whined a little bit about it, and ended the fight minus one hand and lightsaber.

And as for Palpatine...


I'm working on it. He's actually pretty cool. Turn him loose on the Planet of the Apes and there would be nothing left but singed fur...

I'd love to see Fett as much as anyone else, but I'd rather see a 1/6 Fett. However, at this point I don't see that very likely and hope at least a Sideshow Fett is made in one form or another too. We are talking about Boba though right? Jango would be fine, but Boba would be better.

Sideshow will surely make a PF Boba Fett. He's too iconic a character and it would not do justice to the SW license if he's not even in the soon-to-be announced list.


P.S. When you said monkey lovers, I thought you were talking about the POTA line. Now I suppose you are talking about Chewbacca!:lol

Notice how Fett is only cool when he's standing behind that "half-robotic old man." Vader probably prevented him from shooting at Chewie because who knows how many Stormtroopers and Ugnaughts would have been taken out before Boba actually hit the wookiee, if ever. :chew

He couldn't even ambush somebody who was being pestered by an astromech droid!

As for Luke, he beheaded Vader on Dagobah, doing it again on Cloud City would have just been showing off. Not the Jedi way. :lol

Shooting lessons would be nice since they aren't really necessary to have an accurate Fett, but still cool nonetheless.

Just a guess, seems like a smart move considering IJ is one of the most under developed licenses Lucasfilms has. People (including myself) would go ape***** if they release 1/6th scale figures. Indiana Jones is one of the most untapped resources of any movie license out there. The way I see it, SS has their foot in the door so it would only make sense for them to release the inevitable onslaught of new merchandise. It's not like these are mass marketed crap, they would be a niche' market just like the other SS products. And if Lucasfilm is holding back because of the new film, well I call dirty pool on them. People obviously want Indy figures just as much as they want SW figs. It's science. :chew

If I rememer right it seemed we had a poll a while back where ESB BF was the prefered Fett for the 1/6 format... or I could be wrong. Which is good if true because that is the one I voted for.

I'm just happy it's a Fett.... This is the PF I have been waiting for since the beginning. I seriously cannot wait!!! :monkey5

Wor-Gar
07-06-2006, 07:34 PM
Other way around Wor-Gar! Sounds like ESB 12" Fett first...then hopefully we'll see 12" ROTJ Fett eventually also!

...and dare I say it...ESB PF Fett down the road too...or is THAT going to be the EXCLUSIVE version???

:D


Yeah, I just re-looked at the preview and realized I had it backwards. Red gauntlets on the PF! Damn! I wanted an ROTJ 12" Fett for a change...we have so many ESB versions around.

In any event, the PF Fett looks amazing! I love the real material vest with armor. All the detail is there. You know they took their time with this one.

This is when I wish I collected the PF line... just to have Vader and Fett together.

Man, am I a happy camper. I knew that I was going to be away from the computer between 7 and 7:30, and Sideshow was nice enough to release the newsletter just in time for me to start the official Fett PF thread!

He looks awesome and well worth the wait. The best PF yet, and if you don't agree I will blast you with my flamethrower.

I wonder if the exclusive will be the ESB version, or something else? I shall not rest until I have ordered this. If the exclusive is an alternate paint job then I shall have to get both.

My most anticipated Sideshow piece of all time!!!

Thanks! This has been a day of ups and downs, but it is ending with a definite UP. This is my own personal grail item, whether they make 50 or 50,000. It will be my prized collectible. I will probably buy a second one just to store in the attic in case anything ever happens to the first one. Even the preview is the best thing I have ever seen. I will spend all day, every day at Comic Con at the Sideshow booth staring at the display Fett. If security is lax, I will take it home with me. You will have to pry it from my cold, dead hands, etc.

And now, for the last time ever, once more to close the book on the old PF (Pre-Fett) days:

And with that, my quest is at an end.

This will be MY first PF also SLF...but it's a no-brainer...I'll definitely put the cash away for this one! I may also do a PF Maul...depends on his pose...and maybe a PF Jango if his pose matches Boba's enough to look great bookending a shelf together. Outside of that, I'd probably have to ixnay any further PF's due to their size and cost...we'll see though...

A PF Han in Carbonite with working lights? I might be tempted by that too...it would ROCK behind Fett!!!

Sorry, I should have rephrased that. All PFs are team efforts with a sculptor and a fabricator. Except for Grievous, who had a whole team. I could be wrong. I think Oluf hasn't done a SW PF since Vader. And he has been busy with Maul and Boromir.

I coulf be wrong, but given the amount of time between Leia's announcement and Dagobah Luke and that all the hints pointed as Fett or the next character, they really must have put alot of work into him, I'd say it really paid off!

That's what I did. I was never too sold on Dagobah Luke/Yoda PF. It's a classic scene but it may not fit in my collection that well. Now with Fett PF announced the choice has been made for me. Someone will be getting mine off the wait list. :monkey3

I don't think you are alone on this one. I am teetering myself with this decision, not sold on Luke's sculpt yet, and well I already have Luke. :o

Yoda by himself is still likely but not in the near future probably. Nothing against Dagobah Luke/Yoda PF but some decisions had to be made.

That's pretty much why Luke is on the chopping block, duplicates of characters are the first to go. And really I love the first one so much more. I'm really hoping Ironman will come out soon, because if he is too big for the spot I have set aside then I can sacrafice him and keep Luke. But at the moment I'm content to juggle as fast as I can. :google Of course if the exclusive is an easy enough pass that'll help too!

I know its not screen accurate, but I really hope that the base is a carbon freezing chamber style base.

I think if you see Luke/Yoda in person you'll regret not getting them. Yoda alone as a PF is very, very unlikely, so this could be your only shot at a OT PF YODA.

I've seen it and, all due respect to Andy, this Luke blows away the first one.

Given the pose he is in I think a Jabba's Palace base is likely. I am getting the exclusive regardless. :cool:

The base on Luke/Yoda is amazing! I'm a big fan of Luke because I was really young when i saw ESB in theatres and he was my favorite so I'll take all of him they can put out(athough hopefully not another one for a while) so bring it on. I'll just keep him by himself till more ESB PF's come out.....Boba will go nicely!

I thought this would be a good place to post this:

I'm in the process of adopting a basset hound from Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue. He comes with a lot of stuff, including papers from the breeder. I look in these papers to discover his full name is....Bobo Fat!!!!

It's not exact, but the reference is obvious.

It's a sign. It must be a sign. This was meant to be. If the adoption comes through, I'm celebrating by getting my very first PF, Boba Fett, the man himself, my new dog's namesake.

When will Fett ship? Dec/Jan? When did the ones from last year's con ship?

Obi-Wan was revealed just before Comic Con last year and shipped this Spring. I don't expect to see Boba Fett ship in 2006. I would expect first quarter 2007. (But if I can have him for Christmas this year I won't complain!) Vader was revealed at Toy Fair last February and originally intended to ship by Christmas, but he didn't end up shipping until late January/early February. Boba Fett is at least as complex as Vader, and he is going up for preorder about five months later than Vader did. So actually, we might not see him until Q2 next Spring. But the sooner the better. It's going to be a looooooooong wait...

They didn't give us advance notice. I would be very surprised if this weren't either a priority preorder or an inclusive edition item, and either way we would have been given a date and time in last week's newsletter. Since there is no newsletter next week, this will very likely go up for preorder during Comic Con. The good news about that is that I will get my order in Thursday morning regardless of when the online preorder is scheduled to occur, since I can order it from the Sideshow booth. I expect the Captain America diorama to go up for sale this Thursday, but not Fett.

I think it will go up for pre-order Thursday. It will probably have a TBD edition size like some of the past SW exclusive PF figures, so it doesn't need a PPO or Inclusive window. Except for a couple of items that had issues, I can't remember an item that didn't go up for sale the week after the preview.

I thought I read that there wouldn't be inclusives for PFs. Am I wrong about that? It would be the first time.

What about Luke/Yoda? Absolutely no notice about that one. I know it's not as popular as Fett, but...

Luke & Yoda was the first PF to be announced since Sideshow started the priority preorder system, and it didn't use it. In fact, Leia was the first one to go up since they started allowing us to view the newsletter online instead of waiting for it to appear (at various times) in our inbox. So maybe this will just go up the week after the preview! Now I am getting excited.

Well, I was already excited so now I am exciteder.

From the Toy Fair chats:


TheWitchKing - Can you confirm what sculptor is working on the next Star Wars Premium Format?

Mat - I *believe* the next Star Wars Premium Format coming out was sculpted by Oluf... but it all depends on what order they are released!



I have a feeling that this was a reference to Boba Fett. Sounds like another Oluf creation. That's what I suspected back in February...

I hope it's inclusive. We can't all just sit around the computer all day or night sometimes. I know the edition size lovers won't like it, but I like that everyone has a fair chance to get the piece.
